Hello Friends, Readers, and Welcome New Visitors,
Many of you know that when I ‘Guest Spotlight’ a new author, I try not to be so ‘stuffy’ of how and what I write about my guests. I think it sets me apart from other book promoters and book bloggers. To have a little fun when introducing one of my friends. Now I’m not saying I’ll give them a ‘literary roast’ or anything, just share some tid bits of what they do, and about their published works.
So please meet, Bonnie Gail Carter, Poet. and her book of poetry has just released on Amazon’s Create Space titled, “The Chill Turned Warm”
We talk by phone often, and becoming very good friends. She’s just a sweet gal who lives in Indiana, writes poems, loves taking photographs, and she has been through so much trauma in her life, but you’d never know because she holds no grudges of her up bringing. She and her siblings were abandoned, shuffled to orphanages and foster homes, and her taking care of her siblings at a very young age. Yes, hers is a heart breaking story. Instead of being a victim, she funneled all that into her poetry. So let me share a little about Bonnie and her new book of poetry, and share a poem that is one of here favorites!

Message From Bonnie:
Ever since I was a teenager I had always wanted to write a book of poems.
It’s only now taken me sixty years, as I turned 60 this year, so better late than never!
“The Chill Turned Warm” is not only the title of my collection of poems,
but it is my favorite poems in this book. This poem has evolved over a 30 year period
to make it what it is today. It’s title is “Sunsets” …
Sunsets, by: Bonnie Gail Carter
Sunsets have such brilliant hues.
and all of life’s difficult tests?
It just makes me ponder upon what’s next.
Can this wonderful really last?
Soon the present will be out past.
Our memories will have gone by so fast.
Like the sunsets I pray we’ll last for all of time …
